About deCordova Summer Performance Series – Jenna Moynihan

deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is pleased to announce the 2022 Summer Performance Series that invites viewers to explore ideas of kinship, connection and ancestry through the performing arts. These themes are also explored by exhibiting visual artists in The New England Triennial and Melvin Edwards: Brighter Days. Each event this summer offers different experiences of cultures, traditions, and familial connections.

We are excited to share a six week series of world renowned artistic performances. Performances are open to all ages and may be indoors or outside. Please review each event for details.

About the Performance:

Jenna Moynihan is widely regarded as one of the best of the best in the new generation of acoustic musicians. Versatile and inventive, her fiddling style draws strongly from the Scottish tradition, but is not bound by it. Folk Radio UK said of her playing, “…from the first time you hear Moynihan, it is clear that her playing is resonating straight from the depths of her soul.” Jenna graduated Berklee College of Music with honors and was a recipient of both the Fletcher Bright Award & The American Roots Award – given annually to an outstanding student in the String Department. She’s performed around the world in The U.K., Sweden, Norway, France, Denmark, Italy, Belgium, Finland & Canada. And has performed and collaborated with Darol Anger & The Furies, The Milk Carton Kids, Hamish Napier, Old Blind Dogs, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards, Apiary, Phil Cunningham, A Celtic Sojourn, and as a soloist at Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops. In 2015 Jenna released her debut solo album, Woven.
